Intel Xeon 3.06 GHz Socket 604 Processor Review

Intel Xeon 3.06 GHz Socket 604 Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Xeon CPUs we're examining have been built with 0.13 micron process technology, and are based on the Gallatin core which operates with a 533 MHz Front Side Bus (FSB).

Benchmarks: ScienceMark, CINEBENCH 2000

ScienceMark 2.0 Source: ScienceMark

Mol Dyn: Molecular Dynamics is a method for simulating the thermodynamic behaviour of materials using their forces, velocities, and positions. Most important of the afore mentioned is the force.

Primordia: This code calculates the Quantum Mechanical Hartree-Fock Orbitals for each electron in any element of the periodic table.

The dual Xeon system finally comes into its own here. Sciencemark 2.0 makes good use of hyperthreading and multiple processors, and this shows especially in the Mol Dyn benchmark. It's nice to see that the program can differentiate between dual CPU's and HyperThreading as well. Bandwidth is king in the Primordia benchmark, and the 800MHz FSB Pentium 4 takes advantage of this.

CINEBENCH 2000 Source: Cinebench

CINEBENCH 2000 is a free benchmarking tool for Windows and the Mac OS based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D RX. The tool is set to deliver accurate benchmarks by testing not only a computer's raw processing speed but also all other areas that affect system performance such as OpenGL, multithreading, and multiprocessors

Cinebench is the first of our benchmarks (besides Sandra) that specifically tests multiple CPUs. We thought we'd run the Xeon system through the multiple CPU benchmark to see how it did in its various configurations. We knew that hyperthreading allows single Intel CPUs to run this multiple CPU test, so we wanted to see the difference between Hyperthreading's 'virtual' extra processor and a physical dual CPU setup. As you can see, there's quite a significant performance advantage to the extra CPU here, though hyperthreading alone allows a single CPU to do a competent job.
